Testing the CAPM The time-series performance of the CAPM is questioned by the significance of the alpha coefficients. (consider for example the case of the 25 FF protfolios) We also know that other factors beside the market are significant in explaining excess returns Fama-Mac Beth propose to exploit cross sectional information to produce a different test of the CAPM Favero () Testing the CAPM 2 / 7
Fama-MacBeth(1973) Consider the 25 portfolios and run for each of them the CAPM regression over the sample 1962:1 2014:6. These regressions deliver 25 betas. ° r i t ° r f t ± = α i + β i ° r m t ° r f t ± + u i t Take now a second-step regression in which the cross-section of the average (over the sample 1962:1-2014:6) monthly returns on the 25 portfolios are projected on the 25 betas: r i = γ 0 + γ 1 β i + u i Under the null of the CAPM i) residuals should be randomly distributed around the regression line, ii) γ 0 = E ² r f ³ , γ 1 = E ² r m ° r f ³ Favero () Testing the CAPM 3 / 7

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
